Built-up AMT '29 Model A

Recommended Posts

Got this nice older AMT '29 Model A on eBay for $4. Body was brush painted, the other parts that were painted were brush painted, but with acrylics it looks like. All the pieces are there except the front bumper. What should I do with this?

Not rare or desirable enough for a complete teardown and rebuild. 

Paint's not in good enough shape for a "Snake-Fu rescue." :unsure:

If I HAD to do something with it, I'd mix a little tan and/or light gray paint into Dullcoat and start airbrushing it until I'd reached a credible level of "barn find dirt/dust" overall. The yellow would have to go first, of course.

Making progress. It came apart easily as the orange colored glue had become very weak. I think I'll keep the fenders not his one and go for a two tone paint scheme (no rust this time).

This neat club plaque was hiding inside the body of the kit.

Sometimes it’s just fun to build something from nothing.  Carry on!

Salvage is a wonderful thing- not good enough to preserve, not bad enough to scrap- go for whatever takes your fancy!
